Another after-dinner project that I did by firing up the sewing machine and serger. Fret not if you only have a needle and thread. This can be done entirely by hand.
That was easy.

Step 1: Rawr materials
You can use any colors but I had red for the button and pink for the base.
Some stiff cardboard
Fiberfill stuffing or polyester-batting for the plush part.
I also had a strip of some soft foam packaging that was perfect to use as the stuffing for the border of the base .
You will need a sound recording/playback device.
I had found these L'il Reminder recorder thingy key-fobs. They usually go on sale during Christmas as stocking stuffers for the senior folks to remind them where they parked the car. They come in a two pack so they are great for making more than one.
You can build your own but it was just as easy as using one I already had.
